Distinctively Captivating Contemporary Realism
I see the finished work in my mind’s eye before I actually begin, the image appears in flashes and I realize something is trying to become.
It is the process that entices me, the challenge of thought, material, technique, climbing into the image, and thrashing around a bit until I begin to create.
I paint in layers, starting with a drawing right on the canvas, then an allover wash, depicting light and shade and the beginnings of depth. I continue with 2-3 dead layers, all in grays, paynes grey, black, white and torrit grey. Then the color layers, muted at first, as the layers are added the color intensifies and finishing with highlight layer.
A little about me!
Being exposed to different cultures has added to the wonder I find in life and art, having been lucky enough to have traveled extensively. My back ground consists of classical music training, classical art training, and business. I am passionate about dogs, horses, and the ocean, I love 'Film Noir', Jazz, Rock-n-Roll, not to mention a good novel.
